Florida Bill to Eliminate Ethanol Requirement on House Floor

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

Legislation to repeal the requirement that all gasoline offered for sale in the state contain a percentage of ethanol could be considered this week by the Florida House of Representatives with a vote by all members. The Senate version of the bill was amended by the Environmental Preservation and Conservation Committee to simply “encourage” rather than require the sale of blended gasoline. Currently, the Florida Renewable Fuels Standard requires that all gasoline sold or offered for sale by a terminal supplier, importer, blender or wholesaler in Florida contain 9%–10% ethanol, or other alternative fuel, by volume.
